A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) or sleeping sickness is caused by two subspecies of Trypanosoma brucei , Trypanosoma brucei gambiense , and Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense and is one of Africa’s old plagues. It causes a huge number of infections and cases of death per year because, apart from limited access to health services, only inefficient chemotherapy is available. Since it was reported that quinolones such as ciprofloxacin show antitrypanosomal activity, a novel quinolone-type library was synthesized and tested. The biological evaluation illustrated that 4-quinolones with a benzylamide function in position 3 and cyclic or acyclic amines in position 7 exhibit high antitrypanosomal activity. Structure-activity relationships (SAR) are established to identify essential structural elements. This analysis led to lead structure 29, which exhibits promising in vitro activity against T. b. brucei (IC(50) = 47 nM) and T. b. rhodesiense (IC(50) = 9 nM) combined with low cytotoxicity against macrophages J774.1. Screening for morphological changes of trypanosomes treated with compounds 19 and 29 suggested differences in the morphology of mitochondria of treated cells compared to those of untreated cells. Segregation of the kinetoplast is hampered in trypanosomes treated with these compounds; however, topoisomerase II is probably not the main drug target.
